Emily Martin, General Counsel and VP for Workplace Justice at the National Women’s Law Center, says the next steps are unclear. “It seems that the president chose to tweet without having a plan in place with the Pentagon as to what this means,” she tells Broadly. “There are still regulations in place that say that transgender people can serve in the military. And the president doesn’t have the power to sweep away those regulations by a tweet.”
